Carmen is a 23 year-old fighting to keep her family's home. Yesterday she was electrocuted by a taser at the Department of Justice while peacefully protesting with Occupy Our Homes and the Home Defenders League for her rights as a homeowner.
Call President Obama at (202) 456-1111 and tell him to arrest bankers, not homeowners.
Occupiers, allies and community members from across the country came together in front of the DOJ to demand that Attorney General Eric Holder arrest the bankers responsible for upending the international economy through the housing crisis.
President Obama’s Attorney General and his Justice Department have failed to file a single criminal charge, letting the banks have a free pass on money laundering for drug cartels, violating Securities Laws, the nationwide AG settlement on foreclosure fraud, and so much more.
Carmen and the other 2 million underwater homeowners can't wait any longer. And neither can the 7 million families going through some part of the foreclosure process since the housing crisis started.
We put 1,200 bankers in jail after the Savings and Loan crisis during the Reagan Administration, and we've put hundreds of homeowners like Carmen in economic jail for not being able to withstand this calamity. But not a single bank or banker has had to answer for their crimes.
Everyday people emblematic of the 99% are making clear that, as foreclosed homeowners, they want justice against the big Wall Street banks who created their untenable situations.
Stand with us in solidarity and demand accountability. Another World is Possible.
